Ryan Devlin

Ryan Devlin might be getting hot for teacher on BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Devlin (Cougar Town) has signed on for a recurring role as a “fun, smart, and precocious” graduate student in the law class Kitty (Calista Flockhart) teaches. Apparently Kitty will take a “special interest” in him. Devlin will appear in at least four episodes of the ABC drama.

Devlin has been busy on ABC lately, appearing on Grey’s Anatomy as the husband of Mandy Moore’s character and on Cougar Town as Smith. He was originally cast as the lead in the CBS comedy $#*! My Dad Says, but was replaced after the pilot.

Brothers and Sisters airs on ABC Sunday nights at 10pm/9 central.
